Rahu/ ketu peyarchi (transit) on December 23, 2012

This is about the transit of mean nodes of the Moon (Rahu/ Ketu) on December 23, 2012

Why different dates are shown for this peyarchi and which is correct?

You might find different dates for transit on the web - some because they follow vaakya panchanga without the relevant correction as recommended by siddhanta works in astrology and thus may give the Rahu-ketu peyarchi on 2nd December 2012, while some modern softwares may say that Rahu-ketu remain in Vrischika-Vrishabha rashi axis throughout 2012 due to the fact that they are calculating based on True Lunar Nodes. It is to be noted that mean node actually represents Rahu as it is the thing that is always retrograde as per nature of Rahu/ ketu -the Chaaya grahas. The True Node sometimes even goes direct and its progression is not uniform! So, for astrological purposes, it is more correct to consider the mean node for transit calculations - which is what we have done. Based on such reckoning, Rahu-ketu peyarchi (transit) is on December 23, 2012 at 7-55 p.m. IST.


For those born in Mesha rashi (vedic Moon sign in Aries), Rahu transits the 7th house and ketu transits the rashi itself. Transit of both nodes is difficult and much caution is need in all activities. Be diplomatic and guarded in your interactions with members of opposite gender, and be careful while taking new medicines. Health may be below par for elderly natives of this sign - including possibility of allergy to medicines or sudden bouts of illness that are not easy diagnosable. Due to auspicious Jupiter transit in the first half of 2013, the negative effects can be somewhat moderated during the initial phase of the transit - but the period between middle of 2013 and middle of 2014 can be particularly sensitive, and you should be most careful in all your activities during this phase of Rahu-ketu transit.

For those born in Rishabha Rashi (Moon sign in Taurus), Rahu transits the auspicious 6th house from Moon sign giving success over rivals, and success in all activities. However, transit of ketu is not auspicious as it is in the 12th house from natal Moon sign. So, the results will be mediocre - the good and bad results balancing each other out. As Saturn's transit is auspicious for you right now and also transit of Jupiter is auspicious after May 2013, you will have mixed results and the negative effects can be markedly reduced after May 2013.  Be careful in your activities till end of May 2013.

For those born in Mithuna rashi (vedic moon sign in Gemini), Rahu transits the inauspicious 5th house. Women of this sign who are in the family way should undergo regular medical check-ups to rule out complications; relationship with close family members may come under strain. However, the transit of Ketu - in the 11th house from Moon sign can give good gains and career progress. Thus both good and not-so-good results are indicated by this transit. Those appearing for competitive examinations, or have critical appraisals coming up must back themselves by taking extra hard efforts, as the transit of other major planets - Jupiter and Saturn are also tough throughout during this transit period.

For those born in Kataka rashi (Vedic Moon sign in Cancer), Rahu transits the inauspicious 4th house. Health of elderly relatives - especially mother or mother's father/ mother may cause concern. There could also be relocation related anxieties or wearisome journeys due to professional reasons. Ketu's transiting the 10th house indicates possible good luck in some major projects after strenous efforts. The effects can be said to be mediocre as Rahu and Ketu give different results based on this transit. As Jupiter's transit is auspicious right now these natives can expect reasonably good effects until May 2013, and markedly challenging effects after end of May 2013.

For those born in Simha rashi (vedic Moon sign in Leo), Rahu transits the auspicious 3rd house from natal Moon which can give good results and long awaited breakthroughs in life. Auspicious events can materialize for those who have been waiting for wedding bells to ring for a long time. Ketu's transit in the 9th house is slightly challenging for health of self, paternal relatives who are elderly, and overseas prospects - while it is also good for spiritual pursuits and visit to Holy Places. Saturn's transit right now is auspicious and the transit of Jupiter after May 2013 will also be auspicious - so you must just be on your guard during the first half of 2013.  If you can pass the period until end of May 2013 without any mishaps, the other auspicious transits will ensure that your prospects can be great between June 2013 and June 2014.

For those born in Kanya rashi (vedic Moon sign in Virgo), Rahu transits the inauspicious 2nd house while ketu transits the inauspicious 8th house from natal Moon sign. Health could be the main victim of such transits. Regularity in dietary and sleep routines, besides regulating the type of food consumed can go a long way in protecting your health. You must follow the rules of the road carefully while driving, and also be ready to take avoidance actions if the fools at the wheel of the other vehicles come your way impelled by fate – because there is accident-proneness due to this transit. Avoid self-medication at all cost as there is high risk of medicinal allergies.  Also if there are eye infections take immediate medical help and avoid procrastinating on that as eye-problems are strongly indicated during this phase. Also watch what you say under all circumstances; there is real risk of spoiling relationships by careless words.  Avoid raising heavy loans for any purpose as far as feasible. This is a sensitive transit for Kanya rashi natives; luckily, the current transit of Jupiter is auspicious for your sign and so the situation will be manageable if you are careful in all activities and avoid unnecessary risks/ impulsive moves in life until end of May 2013. You should be more careful in the period after May 2013 in all matters.

For those born in Tula rashi (vedic Moon sign in Libra), Rahu transits natal Moon sign while ketu transits the 7th house from natal Moon sign; this transit is challenging for Vrischika rashi natives.
Sade-sathi's Janma sani influence will wait for you to make mistakes so that Saturn can bring punishing life events, and Rahu transiting the natal Moon sign will impel you to make mistakes due to miscalculations in life/ illusions. You should avoid taking impulsive decisions; domestic peace may be marred by unnecessary arguments/ anxieties. Health of self and elderly relatives may cause concern. Please note that already the transit of Jupiter is tough and Saturn is also in Janma-sani mode now making it a sensitive transit of nodes for this rashi.  Patient approach to all matters, regular prayers, and timely handling of issues without procrastination are the keys to handle this influence successfully. The auspicious transit of Jupiter towards end of May 2013 can bring partial relief to you - but never put your guard down even during that phase.

For those born in Vrischika rashi (vedic Moon sign in Scorpio), Rahu transits the 12th house from natal Moon sign while ketu transits the auspicious 6th house from natal Moon sign. Rahu's transit can cause finanace related controversies, unforeseen expenditure, wearisome journeys and heavy workload at work, possible relocation, etc. Expenditure can mount uncontrollably under the joint influence of Saturn and Rahu on your 12th house. Ketu's transit influence helps in overcoming rival activity and can promote gains by overcoming tough challenges. So, the results are mixed for you. The good transit of Jupiter now until end of May 2013 can be helpful - but you must be very careful regarding all matters between June 2013 and June 2014.

For those born in Dhanus rashi (vedic Moon sign in Sagittarius), Rahu transits the auspicious 11th house from natal Moon sign indicating removal of obstacles to auspicious events, success, good gains in business, etc. Ketu's transit over the 5th house can cause some anxiety regarding younger family members, trouble from secret rivals, occasional problems of liquidity for businessmen, and possible ill-health for self or other close family members. Thus the results are mixed for you.  However, the auspicious transit influence of Saturn now, and the auspicious transit influence of Jupiter from end of May 2013 will help in manifesting more of positive results of this transit and the negative results indicated will be contained to a great extent. Be most careful in the first half of the year 2013 and you will do fine.

For those born in Makara rashi (vedic Moon sign in Capricorn), Rahu transits the 10th house from natal Moon sign, while ketu transits the 4th house from natal Moon sign. You should guard your reputation zealously as there is possible risk of scandals arising out of undesirable association. Health of self and maternal relatives may also be below par. You should be extra-careful in all activities. Students should avoid unnecessary distractions to get good grades. Career luck will be mediocre and success is possible only with hard and conscientious efforts.  Since the transit of Jupiter is also somewhat sensitive after May 2013, you must be very careful in all activities in the period between June 2013 and June 2014.
For those born in Kumbha rashi (vedic Moon sign of Aquarius), Rahu transits the auspicious 9th house and Ketu transits the 3rd house from rashi - which is auspicious; So, those born in Kumbha rashi have a good influence based on the transit of nodes this time. You are further supported by good Jupiter transit from end of  May 2013.  You have a good spread of dinner on your tables and unless you spoil it, your party is likely to go great in the near future!  Just be patient during the first half of the year 2013 - wait for the good effects to take form and manifest after May 2013.

For those born in Meena rashi (vedic Moon sign in Pisces), Rahu transits the inauspicious 8th house and ketu transits the inauspicious 2nd house from rashi. There could be obstacles to goals, strained relationship with relatives, fruitless journeys or travelling to distant lands, anxieties due to relocation, delay in getting funds released for auspicious purposes, etc. As Jupiter’s transit is already sensitive and anxiety-inducing, and Saturn’s transit  is also mediocre , this Rahu-ketu transit is quite tough for Meena rashi natives.

Please note that the above results are general and this influence is just one of the many factors that impinge our life...These will be moderated by the effect of transit influences of other major planets and also the directional influences unique to your charts. To some extent I have touched upon the altered influences caused by transit of other major planets in this write-up, but to get the real impact of Rahu-ketu transit unique to your sign it is always best to consult an astrologer who has consistently caught the pulse of your chart correctly and guided you correctly (a family astrologer – like a family doctor is always best in guiding you as long as you have chosen the right person for that important role!; there are some influences that are unique to individuals which an astrologer who is constantly guiding an individual will be better aware of!)
ONE IMPORTANT GENERAL POSITIVE NOTE:  Since Jupiter in transit from end of May 2013 will aspect Rahu with its 5th house aspect, those rashis for whom Rahu's transit has been indicated as sensitive in the write-up above may find marginal relief from the tough effects due to Jupiter's benevolent Grace.  Jupiter's aspect cannot entirely nullify the negative effects - BUT - its benevolent aspect can ensure that as long as you are dharmic in your approach to matters and take refuge in prayers to protect your interests, such remedies can work well in protecting your prospects.


Those who are under adverse Rahu-ketu peyarchi influences (especially those born under Meena rashi, Mesha rashi, Kanya rashi, and Tula rashis) should perform remedies to overcome the possible malefic influences. Worshipping Goddess Durga on Tuesdays/ Fridays, and Lord Ganesha on Chaturthi days will be good remedies for such natives. Also, if you can manage, you may visit shrines like those at /Shri Kaalahasti, /Tirunaageshwaram, Thirupaamburam, Tiruchengode, etc. for remedial prayers (you can visit any of these). Sethu snaanam will also give relief from trouble caused by nodes.

Mahaa Ganapathy homam, Chaamundi homam, Durga Sooktha homam, Prathiyangira homam, Vatuka Bhairava homam, Rahu beeja homam, ketu Beeja mantra homam will be done on that day.
